Cranberries and cherries offer a wide range of health benefits and adding dried sour cherries to this chunky cranberry sauce makes it appealingly sweet and tart.
· 1 ½ cups cranberry juice cocktail
· 1 cup water
· ¾ to 1 cup light brown sugar (Depending on how tart you like your sauce).
· ¼ tsp cinnamon
· 6 ounces dried cherries
· 1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries
Place the cranberries in a colander and rinse them. Pick out and discard any damaged or bruised cranberries.
Stir the cranberry juice cocktail, water, brown sugar, cinnamon and cherries together in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Once the mixture is boiling, reduce heat to medium and cook 2 minutes. Add the cranberries; continue cooking, stirring occasionally about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and chill in refrigerator 8 hours to overnight.
Can refrigerate 1 week.
